Description: Hellenic Republic is a traditional Greek taverna with a contemporary twist - perfect for modern Melburnians!Our food philosophy is simple – fantastic, fresh produce to prepare traditional recipes in a clean, contemporary style. At Hellenic, kefalograviera saganaki is served with sweet peppered figs; local wines are served by the half litre and succulent meats are cooked over char coal.We recommend our Trapezi menu as the best way to dine at Hellenic Republic, where our chefs prepare a selection of our finest dishes for guests to share. The restaurant seats 120 guests, or alternatively can accommodate up to 220 standing guests for a stand up cocktail function.

“Fantastic ! 1st class food & service, but still casual & comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Our first visit here following a friends recommendation.We were a table of 4 and had visited the website and decided we were going to have the Athenian share plate menu, even before we arrived, as it sounded so good and seemed a great way to enjoy lots of different tastes. We were extremely happy with our choice - in fact every dish & side dish we shared was fantastic ! (with the possible exception of the cabbage salad - which was only good :) The Highlights were the Pastourma, figs, ricotta side dish , the Scallops with skordalia crust (the nicest creamiest scallops I have tasted) the melt in your mouth Lamb and the smokey flavored chicken. The service was first class - yet unpretentious, and whilst the restaurant was almost full - it didn't seem too noisy.
We will certainly be back and we would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone (including those new to Greek Food)

“Yummy greek”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

We decided to try our luck and easily got a table without a reservation at 8pm. The guy who served us was from Jordan, he was very helpful and seemed to love his job. We enjoyed haloumi for entrée and lamb and chicken from the grill for main. The grain salad was also amazing. Wines from Greece were also very nice.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

I am always very wary about having high expectations of a restaurant as quite often they don't quite deliver. In this instance I was very pleasantly surprised as on all counts it exceeded my expectations. The staff were extremely welcoming and very helpful and friendly. There was no pressure on us to order the set menu but instead the waitress suggested we have small portions of whatever we fancied and if we needed more it would be no problem. The tzatziki was delicious served with warm pita bread. We had the best spanakopita that we have ever eaten both in australia and in Greece. The spit roast chicken, lamb shoulder were both moist, tender and very tasty and the chilled salted caramel rice pudding a taste sensation. I had a chat with the pastry chef who explained how to make it. What a delight. The restaurant itself with the open kitchen was buzzing and full of energy. I can't wait to come back next time we come to Melbourne. Thank you to all the staff for a fantastic evening with "real food".

Bustling atmosphere and open kitchen to watch the chefs. The best pumpkin dip I've ever eaten. Great cocktail jugs perfect for sharing.
